here. we just learned that u.n. chief moon says the u.n. will conduct an investigation into the alleged chemical weapons use in syria. earlier this week syrian government and rebels accused each other of launching a deadly chemical attack, but there is no confirmation of those allegations. if true, it would be the first use of such weapons in the conflict. as the president said in israel yesterday, the use of chemical weapons is a game-changer. >>> the pentagon is considering plans for $150 million overhaul of the guantanamo bay detention facility. according to facilities, the multimillion dollar plan would include building a new dining hall, hospital and barracks for the guards. the proposal comes amid mounting signs of frustration from gitmo detainees. u.s. military officials confirm that the number of hunger strikes have tripled over the last two weeks from seven to 25. officials say no lives are in danger, but do acknowledge detainees are growing more frustrated. >> the detainees had -- and their attorneys presumably had great hope that the facility would be closed. and they were pa
of state. >> absolutely. it echoed something that she said at the u.n. gay rights is human rights. this is a big moment this week, two big cases. a moment for the country to finally get on the right side of history. dr. king said that the history of to world is long but it always bends toward justice. a moment to look at the proposition 8 in california, and to declare it unconstitutional and also to repeal doma. these are two big cases. and it's going to have a major impact. >> terry, you cover the supreme court for us. it seems to put two justices especially in an interesting position, justice kennedy, the traditional swing vote for the justices. but maybe, even more chief justice john roberts, 58 years old, likely to be chief justice for a long time. you see how support for gay marriage has surged in the last year. even if he personally may be against it, he's likely to look and see, 10, 15 years, still sitting on the bench, it's going to be 70% support in the country. >> there's an institutional challenge to the court in the astonishing speed that the country has changed its mi
commission. and the country is better off for it. on the 17 u.n. resolutions in front of -- they were questioning saddam hussein. on the last resolution, it was a vote of 15-0 in the national security council. russia, china and syria voted. it wasn't as if it was a republican idea. the world thought saddam hussein -- >> greg: you can't get that -- >> dana: you can't get that cooperation now. >> greg: what do you think, eric? >> eric: let's talk about what happened. remember that saddam hussein aligned his troops. he took the border of kuwait and he was going to kuwait. not speculation if he was a bad guy. he was a bad guy. he didn't go to kuwait. he lined them up and we did desert storm and stopped them. he lit the kuwaiti oil field on fire but didn't go to kuwait to take the country down. he decided to light the oil fields on fire. we had to take saddam hussein out. we had been punched in the face with 9/11. afghanistan war was starting up. we had to do what we did. it's the smartest thing george bush did. restored confidence in america. >> dana: one other point. a tease. quad gaddaf
. if the u.s. provides $3 billion to israel and it's vetoed out of the u.n. security council this it's unwilling to take us to the finish line and i think we need to internationalize this issue. that's the palestinian responsibility to international jaz it. there's clear support in the u.n. general assembly to do more and better than the u.s. has been able to do. >> again one of the reasons i was so pleased with what we saw with what president obama said and with what the world hear president obama say he severely explained this is what the united states policy is. it begins with israeli children and palestinian children. deserve a better future. how we going give to it them. second the way to do that is two states side-by-side and then third the way to get to two states is the through direct negotiations. you may not agree with that third step. i hope people will. but the fact is we start with what's the best way to achieve what israeli and palestinian parents want for their children and one another. >> is that perfect example of the dual role. the position of direct negotiations is
was with one of the former heads of the u.n. in iraq begging joe biden to call him as a witness to talk about the lack of wmds in iraq. they refused. so there are key members of this administration, the secretary of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most
the beginning. i thought if there's a reason to invade another country, having to make a case in front of the u.n. assembly doesn't seem like it is warranted. war should be obvious, the reason should be obvious. >> nada bakos, former cia analyst, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >> friday at 9:00 p.m., watch a special replay of hubris, selling the iraq war, followed by talking hubris. >>> coming up, how losing presidential campaigns can lead to a rewarding career as a tv commercial actor. >>> and stephen colbert's sister was a big winner in south carolina. we will have the latest in that congressional race coming up. re. hmm, we need a new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology. look! one select-a-size sheet of bounty is 50% more absorbent than a full size sheet of the leading ordinary brand. use less. with the small but powerful picker upper, bounty select-a-size. a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly wh
state and a viable independent palestinian state. >> but israel is already a state. it is u.n. recognized. it is a state. the two-state solution presumes that israel isn't already a state. and abbas has written that he will never recognize israel's sovereignty. and creating a two states will only give them cause to internationalize a legal conflict with israel. >> the reality as we know it now, this is not, i'm not really debating this particular question. it is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who does not truly accept what we call a settlement based on a two-state solution. an independent, viable state. for the palestinians, in the west bank and gaza and occupied east jerusalem in a viable independent israeli state in the very heart of the arab world. you're absolutely correct. israel is an independent state. the question to you and to many israelis, israel must embed itself in its environment. israel must be integrated into the region as a good citizen as long as the palestinians, and i'm both as a scholar of the middle east and also as an american. as long as the
the planes are delivering humanitarian aid but the u.n. wants them stop for inspections in iraq before they continue to syria, and some see this is part of an american failure to suspectfully confront iran. >> fundamentally this is not a syria problem. this is an iran problem. what has impeded the administration's policy for the last two years since the conflict in syria began is an unwillingness to take on iran. that's the source of the trouble. that's where the key support for the assad regime comes from. >> there is no immediate indicate iraq will crackdown on the iranian flights. >>heather: steve, thank you from washington, dc. >> syria's western-backed opposition is reportedly in disarray after the president resigned early today in a surprise announcement saying he was frustrated with the international community and the opposition body itself. analysts say the chaos threatens to undermine the group's bid to unite forces against president assad and could also hamper support from the united states and other countries. >>heather: despite death threats, former pakistani president is b
